  • Research Profile

    My work examines emotion and inequalities broadly and in a range of social contexts (leisure, work, healthcare, news and social media). I am interested in how our emotions are shaped by social connections and our positions in social hierarchies (social class, gender, race).

    My prior research has focused on the emotional labor of men in nursing and the ways in which individual men and healthcare organizations reconcile masculinity with a caring profession. My other projects have examined the emotional dynamics of sports fandom, sexual assumptions in clinical trials and healthcare, and the emotional dimensions of risk.

    Building on my interest in risk emotions, biomedicine, and healthcare, I have two current projects. The first (Viral Fear project) uses qualitative and quantitative analyses of the 2014 Ebola epidemic to trace emotions across (1) the epidemic timeline, (2) individual and organizational actors, and (3) news and social media sources. My other current project (Pandemic Nursing project) will examine the experiences of US nurses in the context of the COVID-19 outbreak.
